I would encourage readers to post their requests for research advice to one of the many genealogy mailing lists or groups online.
Roots-l and Gen-Newbie are good places to post questions. There are quite a few other email lists and message boards. Readers with additional suggestions on where to posts requests for help can post them as a comment to this message--either here on the website or on the Fanpage on Facebook.
Suggestions for article ideas are always welcome either based upon your own research or an item in a previous column that you would like to see expanded, explained further, or researched in another direction. I don't always get time to reply, but emails are read and I always appreciate the help and ideas.
